With clear notes of espresso, dark chocolate and a hint of authentic Icelandic coffee, this Porter is dark and rich, offering a medium body that is robust, yet smooth on the palate and easy to drink. There’s no need to be afraid of the dark anymore.

Fatehunter (2242) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - FEB 3, 2013
A thin head on a black body. The aroma is roasted/toasted malt. Singular but good. The taste has a mild sweetness from the roasted malt, then some burnt wood joins in for a balanced ale. The texture is smooth with moderate carbonation and a medium to heavy body. An enjoyable drink.

Outstanding representation of a Porter. Pours the right color with the right nose and right head. The ones I had were right all around. Good roast and body. Skál i botn!

From Saveur-Biere. In Teku glass. At dinner, with chicken steaks. Very good. Good body for the style and a great balance between roastyness, bitterness and the sweetness of its finish

Smell of coffee, cocoa. Dark brown colour, dark brown head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, licorice, tar in finish. Surprisingly light body for such strong flavours. Bitter, lightly sweet. Soft and wild carbon. Slightly ashy palate.

Flavors of burnt malts, espresso, bitter chocolate, minerals, bitter herbs, funky fruit rind. Overall rich, bold, tasty but with some rough edges.
